A new benchmark in electric vehicle (EV) performance and usability... Three models are available, with prices starting from £94,950 / €106,400

Lotus has recently disclosed the pricing and additional information about its first-ever electric hyper-GT, Emeya, for the UK and EU markets. Moreover, the company has launched an online configurator that allows customers to personalize and design their vehicle before placing an order. Emeya, the all-new electric hyper-GT, which is set to release in Q3 of this year in Europe, is expected to set a new benchmark in terms of EV performance and usability.

Commenting on Emeya, Feng Qingfeng, CEO, Lotus Group, said: Electric cars do not have to be boring. We are combining our rich sports car heritage with the latest cutting-edge technologies to redefine what it means to drive an electric vehicle. Emeya seamlessly blends exceptional ride and handling with world-class luxury, performance, comfort, connectivity, and range – bringing drivers the ultimate grand tourer package with the unrivalled driving experience of a true Lotus.”  

Emeya helps drivers own an electric vehicle with confidence, even on long-distance journeys. Lotus has improved the battery design of its vehicles, allowing for 20% more cells to be fitted into the same space. This means that Emeya can offer faster charging capabilities, resulting in a range boost of up to 20%. When using a 350 kW DC fast-charger, Emeya can charge from 10% to 80% in just 18 minutes, providing a maximum WLTP range of 610 km (379 miles).


Emeya is available in six colors, including two new finishes that are available as exterior options across the entire Lotus electric vehicle range – Boreal Grey and Fireglow Orange. The other colors include Solar Yellow, Akoya White, Stellar Black, and Kaimu Grey.

Emeya is priced competitively in the luxury GT segment and is available in three variants: Emeya, which is the entry point for the range and starts at £94,950 (€106,400); Emeya S, a well-equipped Hyper-GT model, which starts at £107,450 (€126,950); and Emeya R, the flagship, which starts at £129,950 (€150,990).

Emeya will arrive with UK and European customers in the Autumn of 2024 after being launched in China on 18 January. Further details on market availability will be released closer to the time.
